My Favorite Things Goes Scrap-Tastic!!!

Greetings Friends!!!

For those of you who follow along - you'll know why I haven't been blogging in forever and for those of you who don't - here's WHY!  =)  But I'm heading into that really good stage where my energy is pretty high as is my motivation.  I can feel the nesting coming on!!  I'm trying very hard to dive back into the scrapbooking world as I have so many projects that have been waiting so patiently for me for many MANY...(gulp)...years! 

And really - you all know how much I ADORE all things My Favorite Things related and couldn't contain myself when THIS was posted on the MFT blog. 
And I must be honest with you - I have THE hardest time photographing 12x12 pages.  I have a light box that works wonders with my cards and other small projects but when it comes to large scale projects I struggle so I hope that I did my page justice!

I so adore the simple and classic elements of this sketch.
 This page is, as you can see, of my darling daughter from this past summer.  I chose four of my very favorite pictures from a family trip to Vermont to capture the essence of her fun, sweet and wonderful nature.

I kept my colors light, summery and breezy using cardstock from Bazzill.  The majority of my patterned paper is from Amy Tangerine.
I've used some of my very favorite MFT products including Behind The Camera Die and Stamp set, Tag You're It Die and Stamp Set, Mini Pennants, and Botanical Beauty.
 
I love the earthy use of sticky back cork combined with the fun summery colors.  As you can see above, I took a light blue button, colored it with a turquoise hued Copic to create just the color I needed.  I then coated it in Matte Multi Medium and dunked it into crystal glitter so that it added a hint of sparkle.  I backwards tied my bow behind my button and anchored it down with a drop of hot glue.

I am hoping to have some time to create with the Project Life version that the crafty gals at MFT provided as well!  We'll see what the rest of the week brings my way!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Crafty Hugs!
